Soil. Vines. Wines. In this order. We are resolute in our passion to produce hand made, minimally invasive wines that both whisper and shout about the terrior from which they are grown. The Ampelos vineyard is sustainable, organic and biodynamic certified and our focus on a natural process in evident in every aspect of our winemaking. Located in the cool coastal climate of California's central coast our 82 acre vineyard is part of the breathtaking Sta. Rita Hills AVA and planted with 27 acres of vines. Our primary focus is on Pinot Noir, but we also grow and produce small batches of Syrah, Grenache, and Viognier. Taste through all of our wines by joining us in our tasting room located in the Lompoc Wine Ghetto.

Interesting wines and a very friendly and enthusiastic server. It was fun to have a real conversation and not just about wine although wine was the essential topic. The wines are very good and they encourage comparing the different varieties. Despite the somewhat industrial building...More
